Not to sound argumentative, but when you say DNA who's DNA are you referring? The chimpanzee? My or your DNA? The fossilized remains of some long extinct species? I'll admit I know next to nothing about DNA, so when you say it's evidence of evolution...

To compare DNA between say two people you must have samples from both parties. Wouldn't it be the same if you say there was a species that wasn't a chimpanzee or human that caused or precipated a new branch (us or them the chimpanzees) then there must be something other than DNA to validate that statement. The DNA isn't going to tell you what long extinct animal we evolved from...right?

I know I'm probably sounding very stupid and I'm sorry. Is this what would be called a transitional species?

To explain the DNA evidence would take a fair amount of typing, like book-length.
You will have to investigate the science and the arguments, but there are many good sources. Others have pointed them out to you; Richard Dawkins, Jerry Coyne, et al.

The evidence for evolution comes from many disciplines and is formed by an interlocking network of support, fact upon fact, inference upon inference. I am not capable of summarizing the support DNA provides for evolution in a concise manner that is convincing.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
